Laying on the grass my heart it flares like fire
The way you slap my face just fills me with desire
You play hard to get
'Cause you're teacher's pet
But when the boats have gone
We'll take a tumble excuse for a fumble
Shocked me too the things we used to do on grass
If you fancy we can buy an ice-cream cone
Your mate has gone
She didn't want to be alone
I will pounce on you
Just us and the cuckoos
You are helpless now
Over and over we flatten the clover
Shocked me too the things we used to do on grass
It would shock you too the things we used to do on grass
Grass, grass.
Things we did on grass

    General CommentAnd in any case this song deserves mention for two of the best instrumental transitions on any album in history. Cauldron -> Grass= brilliant. Ballet for a Rainy Day -> 1000 Umbrellas = perfection.

    General Commenti think he means the lazy summer he and his girlfriend share both on grass and, you know, on grass.

    I guess they're sat in the park, quietly happy and high.

    General CommentActually, on second thoughts, they're just high and boning.

    General CommentAgreed, it's another of Andy's deliberate puns. Both meanings are correct. I'm looking forward to his next round of falling in love, cause that's when the best songs come out. This one was seems to have been a nostalgia based romp, perhaps a slight nod to van morrisons' "brown-eyed girl"; makin' love in the green grass.

    General CommentWith XTC if there is a possible double meaning you can pretty much count on both being intentional and completely true. They're clever that way.

    My InterpretationIt's both a "come onto me" song and a dope smoking song.

    General CommentOn the last lyrics, One might imagine they're like "Those things I did were so far removed from who I am now, I might as well have been high on marijuana compared to who I am now."
